Hi Guys,
I noticed that people often reply to a spammer post, but in actual fact these posts are often written by bots (automated scripts) or in some cases low-paid humans in 3rd world countries.

It seems we have the latter in this case since I have a couple of fields that ask actual Z related questions before sign up. This has been preventing 99% of spammers and spam signup's but some are still getting through, I suspect manually.

Best thing to do is click on "Report to moderator" link in the post. This sends myself, Lurch and other mods an email. We can then quickly find the spammer and delete their account and all related posts.
